An easy-to-use AML solution that engages banks, credit unions and Money Services Businesses in compliance

Heavy fines for non-compliance

Highly publicized fines imposed on banks and money services businesses (MSBs) for allowing criminals to use their institutions to launder money reinforces the importance of having a proper anti-money laundering (AML) program.

 

To help financial institutions comply and evolve as regulations tighten, Alessa offers an end-to-end AML solution that includes due diligence, sanctions screening, transaction monitoring and automated regulatory reporting.

 

The solution detects and reports suspicious activities, proactively resolve and identify high risks entities, screen transactions in real-time to reduce the risk of illicit activities – all without increasing the effort and staff to maintain compliance.

True picture of risks

Alessa leverages data from various sources to create a risk score. Risk factors and weights are all configurable by the organization to match their risk appetite and tolerance. Periodic reviews are managed by workflows and scores are updated based on the entities’ activities.

Monitor and screen every activity

Alessa monitors every transaction, including cash deposits, wires and checks, to detect suspicious activities. With this holistic view, any alerts are sent to the appropriate personnel for further investigation, remediation and reporting.

 

Machine learning and analytics

By learning from historical data, Alessa is able to detect suspicious deviations from normal behavior. Anomaly detection is also combined with rules-based analytics and entity risk scores to reduce false positives and prioritize investigations.

Learn from past decisions

Configure the system to learn how investigations are handled and then reapply those decisions to future alerts and cases. This highly configurable feature reduces workloads and repetitive decisions.

 

Eliminate tedious reporting

Alessa offers automated regulatory reporting for currency transaction reports (CTRs), suspicious activity reports (SARs) and suspicious transaction reports (STRs).

 

Reports are auto-populated, validated and electronically submitted to regulators across multiple jurisdictions, including FinCEN and FINTRAC. goAML is also supported.
